Whatever you want to be, be it fully at St. Edward’s.

Bring your ideas and enthusiasm. We’ll provide the opportunities and support to take you exactly where you want to go.

On the hilltop, you’ll be part of a close-knit community of smart, globally minded, critical thinkers and problem solvers who are passionate about making the world a better place.  Together, you’ll learn in small class taught by professors (not TAs) who get to know you and mentor you. 

Our students do amazing things here. So will you. Launch your business plan at the 3 Day Startup. Study an enzyme that might help crack the code of stomach cancer. Head to Kenya on a medical mission trip. Intern with Goldman Sachs or the Austin major’s office. Or write the winning grant that secures $25,000 for a nonprofit you love. Your path is yours to forge.

Plus, there’s nowhere else quite like our hometown — Austin, Texas — a magnet for innovation and opportunities, and ranked the #1 city to live in the U.S.
